This comes in handy whenever I need to lead the prayer or offer opening/closing words for an event. I am always able to find a reading that fits the occasion. It seems like a lot of readings are from 1997, however. I'd like some more recent ones. A bio on the authors would be nice too. I'm relatively new to UUism and haven't heard of any of the authors.
A wonderful addition to daily life. The daily nugget of spirituality, scheduled to my needs, has brought a continued sense of faith even during the youth-young adult transition, where so many others lose touch with their UU upbringing. As a young adult from an obscenely long line of UUs, this app has helped fill the gap I was left with following the move off to college. Not to mention how cute and just nice the chalice is, especially with the feature of being able to actually blow out the flame. Overall, one of the most fulfilling apps ever.
Overall good I find the chalice lighter a little hokey, but it's cute. I love the daily readings, but I wish they were more easily searchable. A few days ago I read one about the power of words to heal or harm, but then my phone rang and it was gone. Just try a search for the word "words"!! Overall I'm very pleased and look forward to seeing further development and additional readings.
It's got potential. I enjoy the readings. It would be nice to have it updated with more. It's very user friendly and reasonably easy to find things. What I'm pretty unhappy about is the daily inspiration function. It works for awhile, but then eventually gives you the same words day after day. That's pretty ridiculous. I also thing the addition of the chalice is goofy...
Okay, as far as it goes If the UUA wanted to make an app for UUs, I wish they would have integrated some more meaningful content, such as articles from UU World, or even a "find nearby churches" feature. As it stands, it feels like a few things were pulled together just so we'd have an app.
Problem with favorites! On my old phone I was able to designate favorites for reading that I really liked but when I installed on my new phone it does not give me that option. The main page seems to indicate you can save them to favorites on the reading themselves there is no function to do so. Help! Problem With designating favorites.
